Description:
How do I batch rename text-files to the first line in the content plus a minus
sign plus the last line of content
Input Sample:
Cryin in the rain

A black cat moans
When he's burning with the fever
A stray dog howls
When he's lonely in the night
A woman goes crazy
With the thought of retribution
But, a man starts weeping
When he's sick and tired of life

David Coverdale - 1986
Output Sample:
Cryin in the rain - David Coverdale -
